Ultralight and packable quilts for camping and backpacking offer high-performance warmth and comfort. The 900-fill water-resistant down quilt keeps you warm and comfortable.

Therm-a-rest says:

It’s not weightless, but the three-season, 15-ounce Vesper feels pretty darn close

Built to provide a featherlight pack weight and high-performance warmth, the Vesper 32F/0C quilt thrives during ultralight, backcountry adventures. The quilt uses thermally-efficient box baffled construction to ensure warmth and comfort in an ultralight package. Designed with high-quality materials and Therm-a-Rest performance features like a SynergyLink™ Connector, a snap neck closure, perimeter side baffles and an insulated footbox provide warmth and comfort in the backcountry. When compared to sleeping bags, the Vesper quilts save weight and pack smaller by utilizing the warmth of your insulated mattress. Storage sack and compression stuff sack included.

Nikwax Hydrophobic Down

Used in all Therm-a-Rest 3 and 4-season sleeping bags. Nikwax Hydrophobic Down absorbs 40% less moisture than untreated down. This keeps you warmer over a greater range of conditions, and allows it to dry and restore performance faster. And since all water-resistant down treatments wash out over time, Nikwax Hydrophobic Down is specially formulated to be easily retreated at home using Nikwax DownWash and DownProof, ensuring the long-term water-resistance performance of your bag.

In addition, unlike other treated down, Nikwax® Hydrophobic Down is a water-based formula that’s Flourocarbon-free (a.k.a. PFO’s, PFOA’s or PFC’s) and safe for you and the environment. We found this a particularly compelling reason to go with Nikwax, as questions are increasingly raised about the long-term effects of these chemicals and their persistence in our bodies and the environment.


ThermaCapture Radiant Heat Technology is a proprietary reflective coating that we apply to a range of surfaces. By reflecting radiant heat back to your body that is otherwise lost, this extremely lightweight coating turns that surface into a very efficient heat reflector, amplifying warmth without the excess weight or bulk of added, conventional insulating materials.

Therm-a-Rest's Vesper 35 UL Down Quilt is our lightest quilt with a comfort limit of  -0C. This outstanding warmth to weight ratio is achieved by using the highest quality responsibly sourced down expertly zoned in a box wall construction. The quilt is lined with ThermaCapture to trap body heat keeping you nice and toasty.

The foot box to is quite narrow but this helps with a close fit around the end of your mat. There is a single (potentially flimsy) strap to keep the quilt attached to a sleeping mat to help hold in your body warmth. The strap can be removed if you want to save a few grams. As you would expect with such a lightweight quilt the pack size is very small.

Good so far.

Got this one for a trip to the states. I haven’t used it enough to test the longevity but so far very pleased. It warms up well and as someone who likes to stay warm I topped it with leggings and a T-shirt for nights just above freezing in a summer weight tent (Big Agnes Copper Spur Bikepacking). I haven’t yet resolved a couple of points on how to get everything to stay together and I’ll be tackling that on my next trip. The single tie doesn’t quite seem to be enough. Best feature is the tiny pack size - it is fabulous for a bike pannier or rucksack and yet puffs up to full bag size when removed after a few minutes. A huge improvement on the 25 year old one it replaced. It didn’t integrate perfectly with my large NeoAair but I’ve just replaced that with a rectangular pad which should work better.
